Iron Bow in Action
Four Star System for Four Star Use
A Department of Defense client required an upgrade to its audio visual capabilities in a number of its conference rooms which cater to high ranking Department of Defense officials hosting visiting dignitaries. This engagement had a variety of challenges relating to user comfort with high-end technologies, an inconsistent user-base, content sharing and security concerns along with a severely outdated infrastructure. Iron Bow designed a solution that could meet these challenges while repurposing some of the client’s legacy equipment. The Iron Bow team implemented upgraded monitors, provided new audio mixers and installed a video wall that supports multiple inputs across the display. This solution allows for numerous inputs during a briefing such as several video teleconferencing inputs, presentation content and multiple live TV feeds all simultaneously running on the wall.
A newly-built hospital needed video teleconferencing capabilities in 28 conference rooms throughout the building. The requirement was to be able to conduct video calls with numerous other facilities stateside and worldwide. The clarity of the video calls was a key factor for the users, who were primarily doctors, needing to see in fine detail from the far end for proper diagnosis. The Iron Bow team’s site survey uncovered several issues with work completed prior to our engagement, in the equipment set up and infrastructure design. Our team of experts provided the appropriate technology and connections for each space to remediate the issues that were found. We also leveraged the existing SMART-Podiums and integrated IPTV into the video teleconferencing solution allowing the client to easily use a one touch panel to control all devices. The doctors now have the ability to conduct high-resolution video calls with facilities all over the world in support of the patient care they provide the U.S. military.
Enabling Face-to-Face Warfighter Support
A Department of Defense client required personnel located across multiple sites to be able to communicate real-time, face-to-face in a classified environment. They knew video teleconferencing could give them that ability. Previously, they had been communicating via telephone and email, both of which proved unsatisfactory for fully meeting their warfighting mission. Iron Bow provided design and implementation services for a unified approach to their communication architecture. This engagement encompassed survey, design, engineering, product acquisition, warehousing, product delivery to remote locations, on-site installation, testing and warranty support. The solution also included an assessment of current operational capabilities that established a baseline design of the client’s existing architecture. The team planned and designed the unified communications and interoperability architecture with input from government technical personnel. The resulting system provided the face-to-face interaction the client was looking for and made secure, real-time collaboration among remote teams much more effective.
